Bullying of Straight People

2/22/17 San Diego Union-Tribune reports on a recently retired Women's National Basketball Association player:
Wiggins, a four-time All-American at Stanford, asserts she was targeted for harassment from the time she was drafted by Minnesota because she is heterosexual and a nationally popular figure, of whom many other players were jealous.
“Me being heterosexual and straight, and being vocal in my identity as a straight woman was huge,” Wiggins said. “I would say 98 percent of the women in the WNBA are gay women. It was a conformist type of place. There was a whole different set of rules they (the other players) could apply.
Imagine if a gay NFL player retired and made the same remarks.  It would all be Trump's fault.
